NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY SIKKIM


   Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering concerned primarily with the application of the engineering, physics, and material science for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems.

   The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in 2013 with the inception of the Institute to produce globally competent Mechanical Engineers capable of contribution to society through innovation and working in multidisciplinary field. This department offers 4 Years B.Tech programme in Mechanical Engineering, where the students are encouraged to acquire knowledge facilities with a perfect blend of intellectual and practical experiences. Academic course works have been designed to provide students with ability to apply knowledge of science and engineering and capability to lead team work and technical expertise.

   Students are provided knowledge to understand the fundamental of basic sciences and humanities, problem solving abilities in industrial applications and involvement in international environment. The department welcomes students from other departments of the institute as a gesture of support to their time-to-time academic and research needs. The department is planning to start master degree program soon. The department offers PhD programs in major thrust areas viz. Thermal Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Design & Dynamics and Production Engineering and also multi-disciplinary fields. High Performance Computing (HPC) facility is also available in the institute and research works is going on using this data intensive computing system in the fields of Mechanical Engineering (CFD, FEM etc).


The various aspects of Mechanical Engineering fields are as:
  • Applied Mechanics
  • Fluid Mechanics
  • Thermal Engineering
  • Machine Design
  • Production Engineering
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Manufacturing Technology
